    Ok, I have an idea. It starts with a question. Then somebody answers it. Then somebody questions that answer. And then somebody answers that question. And it keeps going ‘round and ‘round… in a big radioactive evil demented circle of love, peace, and happiness.

    Now, somebody ask a question to get us started.

    Can someone name three other operating systems Apple had under consideration for the foundation of its next generation OS at the time the company chose to acquire NeXT?

    hmm… I think I’m going to abandon this thread, because I don’t really understand how to play. (oh, sure, I started this thread, but does that really matter?)

    Mmm, are you questioning my answer to your first question now?

    [maybe we could try someone posting some statement that could be an answer—the next person would then ask the question that got that answer, and provide us with a new answer to ask a question to get—get it?]
